Restored peapod boat to be launched and rowed to the Rockland Breakwater Light

Not since the days when keepers staffed Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse has a trip to the site in a peapod boat been more historic than the row set for August 15, 2010.

History will be made when a restored late 1800s wooden peapod boat departs the shoreline of Rockland, Maine, for the lighthouse where the artifact will be placed on permanent exhibit inside the light station’s boathouse.
